Masks are cheap protection

Jerry Hansen, Rural Minot

Is there any Humanity left in America? I hope so.

I haven’t seen a lot of it lately. People threatening store employees with weapons when they confront them for not wearing a mask or any type of face-covering. Just a simple little mask.

People are just not wearing masks in public buildings or in an enclosed area where the public may gather. Why aren’t they? Do they not know wearing a mask is for the protection of OTHERS. Your neighbors, your friends, your family, your fellow human beings.

Masks are not worn to PROTECT YOU. They are for the protection of others. Freedom isn’t free. Wearing a mask is cheap at any cost. Please wear a mask where they are required and for sure where it makes sense to do so. North Dakota smart or not? Sound sappy? So be it.
